Publisher's summary

The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie, and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original. It has been used as a roadmap to achievement by countless individuals.

The 13 Steps to Riches described in this audiobook offer the shortest dependable philosophy of individual achievement ever presented for the benefit of the man or woman who is searching for a definite goal in life. It comes directly from the experiences of hundreds of America's most successful men.

Hill interviewed 504 people, including Ford, Wrigley, Wanamaker, Eastman, Rockefeller, Edison, Woolworth, Darrow, Burbank, Morgan, Firestone, and three United States presidents. The process of conducting these interviews required an investment of 20 years of Napoleon Hill's life.

Classic Book, 21st Century Version Better

Let's get something straight - TaGR is not a magic book. I've seen so many reviews with "don't alter the original, don't change it, don't add new content" that I was afraid of buying any other version. I have already read the book in paperback so this came as the next natural choice.

TaGR (this version) is good but it's not perfect. The naration sometimes it's not very exciting and it can get lost in the background. The story focuses on the TaGR methodology which is fine but it's sometimes alienating to hear examples from 75 years ago. The lenght is way too big especially since the principles are not so many.

So I enjoyed this purchase. However, I enjoy a lot more my copy of the 21st century edition. It's far better edited, the sound quality seems better (it's totally subjective) and it's far more relatable than to the classic.

Therefore, if you want TaGR on steroids, look for the latest version. It's far longer but it's worth it.

The Original is Always the Best

If you have read or listened to other versions of Think and Grow Rich you need to listen to this one too. It is the original 1938 text. It is longer than most other editions but, it’s worth it. There are whole sections of this book that are left out of other versions. And I found those sections to be quite valuable. As for the narrator – I thought he was fine. His delivery allowed me to add whatever color I needed to as I digested the information

Liked it very much!

After reading other reviews I thought that to buy this particular version of the book is a bad idea. But I bought it anyway, because I've read good reviews about it on the other websites. And I'm NOT sorry at all...

The narration is good. I've had no problems listening or understanding ANY part of this book.

The book itself is Excellent! Considering that it was written more then half a century ago, it still presents the idea that is valid and useful today.

The well marketed book "The Secret" is nothing more then a newer and much shorter version of this same book. The only difference is that "The Secret" presents you information openly (because it published today), and "Think and Grow Rich" pushes you toward the same idea without naming it (because it was published "back then", and the author probably didn't liked the idea of spending the rest of his life in mental institution).

Would recommend this book to anyone who wants to take control of his/her life. Listen to it it'll do you good (or in the worst case - nothing at all).

It's a must.

The reason this book remains a top seller is because it is amazing. I read it in paperback many years ago and loved it. When I found that there was an "original manuscript" I was intrigued. It is interesting to see what was left out and well worth the time spent. I feel like I have gotten much more out of it this time.
The narration is nicely done. Regarding the first reviewer's comment. The narrator is using the correct Scottish pronunciation of Mr. Carnegie's name.

Must Read!

After reading and listening to this entire book I now understand why all the successful people in my life have read this book. Do yourself a favor and listen to this book. If you can try to read it alongside the reader and maximize your absorption of the content. This took me two weeks and I can confidently tell you my mind is in a completely different space now than when I first read this book.

Wishing you all the riches you desire and deserve!

The original and still the best

I first read the print version o fthis over a decade ago and it totally changed my life. Since then I have worked in over 30 countries, publised my own books and lots more I thought I would never accomplish.

Part one of this download is for me the best. Great case studies on achievement and how to face down the monsters that haunt us all. If you aren't familiar with this work then today is a great day for you to start.

Worst book I have ever read

This book is absurd. It shows it’s date of being written by referring to people by race/ethnicity as “colored” and “oriental” in the early chapters. If you are not a white male, you should not read this book. If you are looking for tips to think and grow rich, you should not read this book. The chapter that got me was around chapter 13 or 14 when he tells people that one of the major steps to riches is through telepathy and activating your sixth sense. That is not a metaphor for anything. He literally talks about meditation and speaking with Thomas Edison and Jesus (to name a few that he references) as his advice or principle to becoming rich. Like who in their right mind recommends this book to anyone. Please read this review and save yourself hours of your life from this terrible and completely outdated book.

Dated, and doesnt really lend itself to audio

This is somewhat of a time capsule, it's a self help book written in the aftermath of the great depression. There are some nuggets that are detailed and I found some of the historical perspectives to be interesting, but overall it really didn't work, particularly as an audio book. There were exhaustive lists throughout the book - for example the 28 primary reasons people don't succeed, which made following the book a challenge. It is obviously a classic to have lasted this long, it just didn't work for me.

Narrarator is Horrible

This narrarator pronounces Andrew Carnegie's name incorrectly throughout the whole book! Extremely annoying, so much so I am purchasing another audio version with a different narrarator. Buy another audio version. Think and Grow Rich is an incredible book, but this narrator is no good.

It's about "the secret"

If you're familiar with the secret (think about something and it's just manifests itself from nothing) it's basically the same ideas. I should have known this before purchasing because I really disagree with the idea that you can make money by wanting it hard. The execution matters the most.
All the stories are a 100 years old, so it's also very unrelatable in my opinion.
